Actual European conditions for agriculture and rural development Agriculture has lost much of its previous roles in the development of rural areas (production protection). However it is still considered to be the best way of ensuring a lasting connection between the population and the land.

actual european conditions for agriculture and rural development
Actual European conditions for agriculture and rural development
  • Agriculture has lost much of its previous roles in the development of rural areas (production protection).
  • However it is still considered to be the best way of ensuring a lasting connection between the population and the land.
  • Multifunctional concept of agriculture (EU) seems to be a legitimizing argument for contributing to the socio-economic development of rural areas and for responding to “new” consumer concerns.
multifunctionality and outputs of a multifunctional agriculture
MULTIFUNCTIONALITY and Outputs of a Multifunctional Agriculture

Three elements of Multifunctionality:

  • Production
  • Territorial
  • Social

Outputs of a Multifunctional Agriculture

commodity outputs non-commodity outputs

(COs) (NCOs)

private goods private goods public goods

examples of multifunctional outputs
Commodity outputs

Food and fibre

Transformation of products

Rural tourism

Care activities on farms

Other marketable products

Non commodity outputs

Food security and safety

Rural landscape

Rural way of living/traditions

Biological diversity

Soil conservation

Health and other non commodity products (silence)

Examples of multifunctional outputs:
sustainable rural development at farm level moving to multifunctionality

Broadening:

  • (rural area)
  • agro-tourism
  • landscape management
  • diversification
  • new on-farm activities

Sustainable rural development at farm level: moving to multifunctionality

  • Deepening:
  • (Agro-food supply chain)
  • short supply chains
  • organic farming
  • high quality production and regional products

Farm

  • Regrounding(Mobilisation of resources):
  • new forms of cost reduction
  • off-farm income

aim of my research
Aim of my research

The Main Aim of my PhD research will be to analyse the impact of multifunctional agriculture on the ruraldevelopment in one selected region in Slovakia. Specifically it will be examined the economic and social contribution of farms to the development of country villages.

Economic contribution: How Multifunctional Agriculture influence the farm‘s economic level and rural economic development (e.g. income, net profit, costs, prices, share of added value to farmer, nº of goods offered, nº of tourists, etc.)?

Social contribution: How Multifunctional Agriculture influence community/rural survival (nº of local groups, rate of migration, nº of inhabitants, on-farm employment, new employment opportunities, etc.)?

On Farm Effects

Commodity Higher added value

Higher income

Higher on-farm employment

Non- Better quality of work

commodity Better valorisation of household labour (women, young people)

External Effects

Higher quality of goods

Higher n. of tourists

New employment opportunities

Rural settlement

Amenities

Improvement of natural and social capital

How to determine the socio-economic impact of multifunctional farm?The S-E impact will be determined through On Farm Effects and External Effects, which are illustrated in the Table.

hypothesis examples
Hypothesis (examples)

The higher the level of farm household general and /or agricultural education, the greater the propensity to Multifunctionality.

The “better” use of available local natural, social and cultural resources, the higher level of Multifunctionality.

The more effective use of financial support of EU funds and/or national and local subsidies, the higher level of Multifunctionality.

collection of data and methods of analysis
Collection of data and methods of analysis

A.Qualitative analysis

  • Case studies of small groups of selected farmers to examine the process of shifting to Multifunctionality (MF).
  • Dialogues with local experts to gain impression of local effects of changing MF and potential for changing.

B.Quantitative analysis

  • A study of 100 farmers with questionnaire; focus on a) degree of MF, b) household and farm characteristics and c) hypothesis to be tested (e.g. quality of goods, use of local resources, etc.).
  • Use of secondary local statistics, where useful.
